Re: Looking for a partner for my Quant project

God almighty! Trolls on a Wilmott forum, who would've thought!

Seriously though, what is it you're looking for again?

Re: Quant developer consultants.

For the sake of the resume, the best way would be to write whatever your oficial title was at the time, as any discrepancy will raise questions during background checks (those are easily addressed, but still). The consulting nature of the job can be mentioned in the responsibilities.

Why not just post it here and not be so coy?
Maybe because misleading is easier when done one on one? Just asking.

Re: Anyone getting into Rust

Even Scala is used for computational finance, so I won't be surprised by anything at all. Haskell is used, with all its "academic" background. People don't care that much these days: if it works, it's good enough.

Re: Anyone getting into Rust

Looking into crystal balls ... Rust will never be used for computational finance. 
Sheesh, I have a few projects to try it right away. What do you mean by "used" here? What's your definition of "never"?

Re: Skype versus WeChat versus etc.

It seems I'm late to the party, but Telegram probably. After all, it does not matter that much: you end up using whatever your clients use, be it Slack or Viber.

Re: LMA Recruitment for Quant Roles

As far as I can tell, you just have been lucky all that time before.  I have ~30 positions in the pipeline at the moment, with more than a dozen agencies. Most of them would disappear for weeks without feedback, updates, or even acknowledgment of emails: one day, they're enthusiastic, and then they'...

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

A physicist, an engineer and a mathematician were all in a hotel sleeping when a fire broke out in their respective rooms. The physicist ... The engineer ... The mathematician ... exclaimed, "I have *proven* that I *can* put the fire out!" He then went back to sleep. So the proof is lost! Too bad! ...

Your cycle() time is roughly e*10E-5. That would mean that the code below runs in 148.4123 seconds? 32.5484418869 on my laptop, why?
